New Mexico 2001 License Plate - Hot Air Baloon
“Very Good+ as per ALPCA guidelines.”
First of all this plate complies with Ebay’s rules since it has expired over 3 years ago (both year AND month are considered) and is not a design that can currently be used on the road. This is sold for collection, display or craft purposes only, not for a vehicle.
Secondly, this IS the plate that you will receive – not one with a different serial number or “similar to” the one scanned.
This is a 2001 stickered 1999 base passenger Hot Air Baloon type 3 plate. The condition is Very Good+, refer to the picture.
What man cave, bar or diva den would be complete without a Baloon graphic plate on the wall?
You might ask why are New Mexico plates somewhat difficult to find: (1) the population base is sparse at 2.0 million (2) there are just 770 vehicles registered per 1,000 residents (3) they issue plates as singles NOT as pairs (4) therefore New Mexico plates are only 0.41% of the plates issued in the US each year. Additionally residents of New Mexico have a tendency to not move out of state. So unless you are in New Mexico or one of the surrounding states you just do not see them on the road with much degree or regularity.
Shipping to the US is either $3.90 for a first class package or $5.60 for priority mail. Yes, I will combine multiple winnings into one package. I will ship worldwide; natch the postage will be not the same.
If you have any questions or comments just contact me.
I am retired and ship PDQ when your payment arrives. I prefer PayPal.
The first plate that I sold on Ebay was on 12-17-96, so I have been around the block a time or two.
